1.               to fund up to an additional 10% of the original funded value (up to £50,000) for increased costs relating to current inflation levels towards Your Fund Surrey project CF171 Leatherhead & Dorking Gymnastics.


a.    The original grant award for £500,000 was granted 05/07/2022. An additional 10% inflation hardship claim of up to £50,000 is allowable, and fully in line with, the Cabinet decision from November 20221.

b.    Works are currently underway and approaching fit-out of the new building.
